Being neither a Christian nor a Jew, a Muslim or Hindu, being a Liberal nor a Conservative, being Black, White, Hispanic, Asian or Indian, being neither rich nor poor, has anything to do with me amongst my Brethren behind this door.

 

Only my trust in God, the faith in my Brothers, and the charity given to mankind as a result of my actions matter in this place.

 

I am a Freemason.
